Featured Project: West Hills 1920’s Colonial

What was the name of this project and why?

We call this home the West Hills 1920’s Colonial. Located in the West Hills off Dosch Road, it was built in the early 1920’s.

What neighborhood was this home in?

This home tucks into Portland’s West Hills near Council Crest Park. Some say this area got its name because Native Americans held meetings and built signal fires here back around 1851. Whatever the story, the park awards multiple mountain views and a beautiful array of Portland City lights.

Who was your target buyer?

We staged this home for a professional family with children. It’s in one of Portlands’ best school districts and has ample space for family to find their own space to relax. With its 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, this West Hills 1920s Colonial is just 10 minutes from downtown. It includes sweeping valley views, a treehouse, zip lines, and a trail up to Council Crest Park.

Who was the client?

Our long time Realtor partner Trish Tassin Greene is in the process of downsizing. She contacted us to stage her personal home. She and Katie Sengstake are jointly listing the home for sale.

What challenges did you overcome?

We had to ensure that the sweeping valley views were immediately noticeable. We used a sofa in a neutral soft grey color in the living room to blend with the wall color. This color combination didn’t distract from the stunning vista just outside.

What features were you focused on showcasing?

We staged the home to reflect a modern family lifestyle, but kept it balanced to also reflect the vintage 1920’s style of the home. We used a large table with linen chairs and a bench to fit the large dinning room and to highlight the vintage chandelier.

The extensive remodel in the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room was well-thought through and ended up a beautiful complement to architecture of this West Hills 1920’s Colonial. We wanted to be sure not to over-stage any of these areas so the incredible new finishes would stand out and make an impact.

We attended an open house before listing, at which we enjoyed watching a family with young children play in the ample yard and thrill over the zip lines. This home is truly special and has a wonderful spirit. It is currently listed and won’t last long! Contact Trish Tassin Green or Katie Sengstake for more information.
